Technical Summary

   This document provides recommendations for the use of Transport Layer
   Security (TLS) in the Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol
   (XMPP).  This document updates RFC 6120.

   The document is intended for standards track.

Working Group Summary

  The document extends the UTA TLS BCP to cover XMPP specifics and as
  such is comparatively less controversial but has still seen enough 
  review to determine consensus. The document has been last-called in 
  both the XMPP and UTA WGs.

  The review has been mostly done by a small circle of interested
  individuals. 

Document Quality

  Three are I believe implementations that match this spec.
